Well, someone's grandma, but not mine. From Gooseberry Patch Hometown Favorites.
Make and share this Grandma's Buttermilk Waffles recipe from Food.com.
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 2 cups buttermilk
- 4 tablespoons butter, melted
- In a mixing bowl, add flour, baking powder, salt, and soda; stir to mix.
- Add in eggs, buttermilk, and butter; mix well.
- Pour batter into a preheated prepared waffle iron; cook until steaming stops and waffles are crisp and golden.
The texture of the waffles turned out lovely, but they were MUCH too salty. I may try them again one day without the salt.
I used this recipe for our waffles, but I seperated the eggs and whipped up the whites, then folded them in after the remaining ingredients were mixed together. We loved them thank you for sharing.
I think this is a wonderful basic recipe but definitely needs some adjustments to make it a great recipe. I made it twice, the first time it came out pretty doughy. It might have been because I always substitute half of the white flour for wheat. The second time I separated the egg yolk from the white and beat the whites until stiff before adding to the batter. That made a HUGE difference in the consistency of the waffles. Also, since this recipe calls for baking soda, do not add anymore salt. Baking soda is essentially salt already. I even used only a little more than half of the baking soda and no salt. Last but not least, add a few tablespoon of sugar for some balance and most definitely vanilla extract!
